30 Days of Me: The Travels...

Day 26 of "30 Days of Me"
A photo of somewhere you’ve been to.

The above is a picture of a construction site in Jaipur. Went to the city recently. Forgot to take pics of anything else. Even though I did take a camera along to get food for this post. Blame it on "Short Term Memory Loss"!

This is my 26th post for NaBloPoMo September 2011.

Trousseau shopping in Johari Bazaar perhaps? Or jooti shopping in Bapu bazaar?
Ghewar from LMB and a tonga ride to McDonalds, blue pottery from the outskirts and a jeep ride to Mehrangarh, all in a day's work, in Jaipur, city of King One and a Quarter! :-)

Arjit Srivastava said...

You clicked one construction site, and that's it, in Jaipur? It has to be memory loss, for sure.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@OB: No shopping this time, dude! But soon, pakka! What's with the "King One and a Quarter" though? I don't know about that one. Kindly elaborate.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Arjit: Hehe! Actually, I didn't click that either. It was my sister who took this pic from her phone. :p

Ah, lame crack at the title of 'Sawai' bestowed on the Jaipur monarchy by the Mughals. You know, Sawai Man Singh, Sawai Jai Singh? Sawai comes from Sawa, and is supposed to mean 'one and a quarter' here. So the King then was so awesome he was as good as one King and a quarter more!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Ohhhhhhh! Now I get it! Cool! Thanks for sharing! :D

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

You're welcome Chicky!
Have you been to Nalanda?

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Nope... not yet.

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

I'm reading a book called Chanakya's Chant. He studied and later taught at Nalanda University. The story has two parallel narratives, one in ancient Pataliputra and the second in present day Kanpur, both cities you've lived in :-)
The picture in your post reminded me of the ruins of Nalanda...

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Wow! That's some coincidence! How's the book btw?

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

Madhur Bhandarkar meets Arthshastra. Desi dhamaal. DJ ChaN is in da house. That sorta thing. Like watching True Lies. Fun.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

LOL! Some description. :D

Abhiroop Banerjee said...

BAD description, actually :-)
The book is fun to read, Chicky. Real masala. Parallel narratives as I said. Ek taraf chanakya and his kick ass brainy blitzkrieg 2300 years ago that ctapulted CGM to power, and a modern day avatar of chanakya - pandit gangasagar mishra who uses his neer mythical cunning to steer his protege, a bright, but plain girl from the slums of kanpur to the very highest seat of power in north block. average writing. too many cliches. but again, solid masti.
bad printing too. no typos though.
and worth the kick for a 190/- impulse buy i guess.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

"a bright, but plain girl" from kanpur... that describes me. I left the "slums" part. :D
